With the recent Gross Jar developments across Europe and New Zealand, the lure of having our very own jar of grossness to feed and nurture became too strong to resist. Please make welcome the Aussie Gross Jar.
1 cup of dog shit
1 cup of human shit
1 raw egg
1 string of used dental floss
Clump of hair from the shower drain
Scraping of conjunctivitis-ridden eye goop
To christen the Australian Gross Jar, we decided to go with a mix of relatively dry ingredients so that we could clearly observe the various elements mould and adapt to their new home. A greeny-brown, still-warm, dog turd became the first resident, which was soon joined by a big dollop of fresh human feculence — kindly donated by one of our friendly interns. Over time, the dog poo has dried out to become chalky in appearance and has lost some of its original form while the intern poo (a curious combination of a long log and cluster of small, darker pellets) has maintained a healthy sheen and much of its original luster. The half rotten egg, stinky floss, dirt and piss-ridden drain hair and eye goop are currently finding their feet in the jar alongside their overbearing cohorts but are sure to assert themselves over the coming months with the introduction of new friends.
